Rawle Fredericks is Cricketer-of-the-Year
Rawle Fredericks was named Cricketer of the year when the Buxton Cricket Club recently held it Awards Ceremony at the Buxton cricket ground pavilion on the East Coast of Demerara.
Herod Ferrell was adjudged the club’s best all-rounder for 2010 while the versatile Clive Andries, the former National under-19 off-spinner who is now a National Footballer, copped the ‘Most disciplined player of the year’ award.
Alvin Jordon received the award for the most improved player of the year and Ryan Nbusa the award for most talented player of the year.
There were also awards presented to executives of the club and Murtland Thomas received one for being the most outstanding executive for the year while Marvin Kato took home an award for being the most dedicated executive of the year.
Five batsmen were awarded for scoring centuries for the year and Thomas (107 vs East Police), Marvin Cole (116 vs Transport SC), Cato (123 vs Enterprise), Fredericks (151 vs Enterprise) and Otis Edwards (126 vs Ogle) all received prizes.
Long serving President of the club, Esse Peters, said despite the challenges of not having as many sponsors for programmes as he would have liked, he was satisfied with the club’s performance for 2010.
He said that he was one of three persons who attended an ICC seminar for ‘groundsmen’ this year and have been using what they have learned when preparing the pitch for matches.
Peters informed that a high point for the club in 2010 was its hosting of their Cricket Academy in August and thanked all those who participated and contributed.
One of the concerns for the club is that there are no qualified coaches working with the youths there and President of the East Coast Cricket Board and GCB Presidential hopeful Bissoon Singh said that urgent attention is being given to fixing this problem and encouraged persons in the area to attend the Level 1 coaching course when they are next held in Guyana.
